OTC Power Rankings: Week 12

[adsenseyu1]

For the most part things remain consistent up top except the Arizona Cardinals jumped into the top 10 for the first time this season following a blowout victory against the Colts. Playing in the NFC West and playing competitive games most weeks gives Arizona a leg up on some of the other teams with similar records. The Rams were the other big mover jumping 7 spots to number 12 after wiping out the Bears. It was the Rams second blowout win in as many weeks and, like the Cardinals, get an advantage by playing in the West, which is far and away the toughest division in the NFL. Both teams are far superior to whomever wins the 2nd wildcard in the AFC.

Speaking of the Wildcard race in the AFC its a logjam of teams. Our rankings indicate that the Ravens have played the best so far and that the wildcard should be either the Ravens, Dolphins, Chargers, or Titans. The easiest schedules belong to the Titans and Dolphins while the Chargers have the hardest road. Only the Ravens have a superior unit as their ability to prevent teams from scoring has been far superior to their ability to score the ball. The other teams all yield just below average points scored and allowed numbers.  Some of the other teams in the race don’t rate nearly as high right now, specifically the Jets who continue to hold onto the 31st spot.
